    It Was a Part of My Life

    I was born and grew up in a few different tropical islands in Southeast Asia. It was always hot and humid all year round. One of the houses that I lived in back then was less than a quarter mile away from the sea. On some very hot days, I would take my bike with a...

    The Ocean

    I live right near the ocean and I just love the way it smells. When I'm away from home I realize how much I miss it and how important it is to my everyday life. That and I miss the sound of the buoy that I can hear when I'm in my room at home.

    I'll Be Home At Last

    I'm deeply excited to see my family when I go home this coming weekend after not seeing them for 4 years.. But what makes me more excited is the fact that I'm going to to dive the those underwater caves once again, feel the white sand beach once again, taste the sea once again...

    Salt Water

    I love how the scent fills the breeze that comes from the sea.  How I know that somehow it will give me this wonderful ability to sleep deeply that night and how it will arouse my hunger.

    Not Always........

    what really attracts me to sea,is not the smell, but the view........but you know the smell in harbour is not always the best, and when the wind blows,it's not only the smell bad but the view also......

    Coast, Scotland

    We lived by the sea in Crail for a while and I loved the smell of the sea and the sea weed, the taste of salt in the air, crashing of waves, mewing of gulls. So much constant action yet peace!

    The Smell

    The Sea does not smell. It is the smell of the coast... But how can I tell, if sensing the moist no-smell of the sea is not a smell. However, I love it, too.
